Joe Biden & The Crisis At The Border

Pushed by members of the Socialist Fascist (AKA Democrat) Party, both feckless Joe Biden and incompetent DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas have acknowledged that there is a crisis at the border.  I would think 5 million illegal aliens and thousands of pounds of killer drugs entering our country since Biden took office in the last two years would have been a sign before now; but better late than never.  So, Biden has announced that in addition to meeting with the President of Mexico and Prime Minister of Canada to discuss the crisis,  Biden is putting some half measures in place in an attempt to slow border crossings and provide some number of illegal aliens legal status. Biden has further said that he finally is going to the border.  

It is good that Biden is implementing some of Trump's policies requiring that more illegal aliens remain in Mexico awaiting hearings related to asylum.  It is also good that some number of illegal aliens will not be allowed into the United States; but the border is essentially still open unless and until more is done to stop the flow of people and drugs into our country.  We also must close down the cartels by military action if necessary.  That could mean American troops based both at the border and in Mexico.  

Of course, Biden is demanding that Congress enact comprehensive immigration reform as a condition for securing the border, which is Dead On Arrival.   Since Republicans got burned during the Reagan Presidency when they agreed to amnesty for a few million illegal aliens in exchange for border security that never happened. They won't do it again.  This time around the only laws Republicans in the House will approve must involve border security.  Things like finishing the wall, cancelling the 87,000 new IRS agents and putting that money into many more border and ICE agents, codifying the stay in Mexico policy, making asylum harder to achieve and deporting thousands of criminal aliens in our country must all happen first before there can be any other comprehensive immigration reform. 

Most likely, Socialist Fascist (AKA Democrats) will not agree to any of these things.  All they want is an open border and amnesty for the millions of illegal aliens already in our country including a quick path to citizenship.  Hopefully, Republicans will not allow any of these things to happen unless and until the border is secure.  So here we are.  This will be a campaign issue as always in 2024.  It plays right into Donald Trump's hands because Trump has been pushing the border security issue for years.  Chaos at the border is one of Trump's rallying cries.  At least Joe Biden is going to the border for the first time in his political career.  We will see how that works out.  Eating a few tacos at the border isn't much of a photo op.
